Mirroring our core conviction that innovative solutions are born out of a spirit of Muafakat and collaboration between the diversity of interested parties, RIGHTS ASEAN aspires to be a catalyst in promoting constructive engagement and interaction and providing legal assistance amongst ASEAN member countries. We recognise the pressing need to respond to various cross-border disputes and conflicts and in that, aim to act as the prime facilitator in bringing together and catapulting the likeminded who share the same vision into resolving these conflicts.
Our work focuses on the RIGHTS issues of Governance, Human Rights andSocial Justice and the promotion of democratic principles within the SoutheastAsian Region. In formulating effective regional approaches of managing politicaland human rights issues, we endeavour to capitalise on the institution of the ASEAN Charter and the formalisation of ASEAN as a legal entity.Through this platform we endeavour to provide a medium through which members of the ASEAN community may come together to further the understanding of the various similarities and differences between the legal systems that exist in this region. In other words, RIGHTS ASEAN aims to foster better understanding of regional jurisprudence and legal system among members of ASEAN countries and ultimately develop and reinvent jurisprudence for democracy in the region. Furthermore, a central and crucial goal of RIGHTS ASEAN is to realize the effective establishment of Article 14 of the ASEAN Charter on ASEAN Human Rights Body which aims to promote and protect fundamental.
